I witnessed this brother in action at the APNC Conference and all I can say is, “Let’s goooooo!” Him and Khrecia facilitated a session called, “Recovery Ain't for Everybody.” I appreciate them being willing to share on the topic and raising awareness about the disparities in the behavioral health space. We need brothers like J at the table, he has a wealth of knowledge, the passion, and as a young leader, the ENERGY to go hard for the underdogs!! Thanks for all you do, comrade!

Mr. Harris spoke in Omaha for the Omaha Collegiate Consortium and University of Nebraska at Omaha Recovery Community in July of 2019. Mr. Harris did an excellent job of fitting the needs of the group. Mr. Harris was engaging, energetic, and adaptable. He showed a thorough knowledge of recovery communities and gave plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We had a wide range of knowledge on recovery communities in the group being trained, and he was able to relate to all of those groups. I would highly recommend having Mr. Harris present to your group.

My experience working with Jarmichael Harris exceeded my expectations! Jarmichael was thorough and resourceful in providing technical assistance to our collegiate recovery program. He helped our program identify clear goals, objectives and a strategic plan and moved our program from inaction to action. I am grateful for his commitment to our program's vision and his willingness to provide us with additional resources to meet our needs. Jarmichael was personable and professional and I would highly recommend his consulting services.
Faces and Voices of Recovery
This guy is a fierce soldier for recovery advocacy. I often wonder why anyone who hasn’t been through this personally becomes invested in recovery support. Jarmichael Harris gets that recovery support impact more than those affected personally. He’s a joy to work with and one of the most talented presenters I know.

I thought your presentation was wonderful- thought provoking and enlightening. I was particularly struck about the history of the word “marijuana,” the waves of response to opioid use, and the power of the equity statement (“…liberate in the humanity is us all…”). Wonderful! So, again, thank you for your time and continued investment in DARS’ growth toward diversity, equity, and inclusion; invaluable.
I had the opportunity to watch one of his keynote addresses at a collegiate recovery conference in Philadelphia. He educated and thoroughly lifted the engaged the crowd. I am a speaker by trade and I understand the difficulty in addressing any crowd. He had the gift to change the thinking and uplift the crowds spirit. Students are attracted to his energy and they respect his craft. Any institution that brings him in to address their population will be better served in the long run. He is real, educational, and motivational!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jarmichael Harris for more than two years now. He has been instrumental on many levels for helping me bring my message of recovery to many institutions of higher learning. With Jarmichael’s help I connected to several collegiate recovery programs all over the country. He’s a consummate professional with a sincere desire to help others and to motivate them to achieve everything life has to offer.

I was the chair of the planning committee of a regional recovery conference and J was our keynote speaker. Working with him was great! Leading up to the event, J was very quick to respond and listened to our goals and needs. He brought all his own materials and arrived early to check out the space. Overall, the response to his talk was very positive and he shared a lot of great content.
I had the pleasure of receiving feedback on a business venture in the human services field. He was very attentive to my need as well as provided feedback through the beginning stages of planning. I gave him an idea of what I was wanting to do, and not only did he provide resources but also penned a professional letter regarding the needs of my particular business. I would recommend his company for all stages of a beginning business, he is knowledgeable in his field, and provides direct feedback in a timely manner. I look forward to working with him on future endeavors.
